This little piece of yawnfest has only a few funny and neat moments. The title hits it on the head. We never know much about the giant rat (and I mean GIANT) that terrorizes Robocop except that it's stupid huge and clever. It's the kind of film that probably works better on paper because the imagination can go a long ways in filling in the visual details. It's not that this is a poorly made film, it's not really. The problem is that it takes a 45-60 minute idea and drags it out to an hour and a half and that spells out dullsville. I was straddling the edge of sleep after the first half hour. The Warner Bros. DVD has a good anamorphic widescreen print and the only extras you get are a commentary track with Peter Weller and George Cosmatos and an anamorpic widescreen trailer.
